Question about Dell Inspiron 9100 Notebook

2 Answers

No wireless networks found in range

I have a Dell Vostro XP with a pre-installed wireless card, Wireless suddenly stopped working at all of the places I have used it for years. I even did a system restore to be sure it wasn't a software glitch. I reset my router, uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless drivers, I made sure Windows is set to manage but there is a red X on my Wireless Connection,Not Connected,Firewalled and no wireless networks show up.

    I was able to follow your instructions and try to "Repair" That didnt work. I didnt understand any of the rest of your instructions, It's all over my head. I don't know how to "ping" or what the IP address for my wireless router is, and no clue what or where an RJ45 cable is. sorry.

Are all the LEDs on the wireless router are on?
When you reset the wireless router wait at least 1/2 min before powering the router up.
Right click on the wireless connection and click on Repair, this will force the wireless router to issue a new IP address to the wireless card. If the the red x is still on the wireless conection then :-
To check if the wireless card can communicate with the wireless router, ping the IP address of the wireless router, (this is the IP address that is used to login and configure the wireless router) if you get no reply and all packets are lost, then connect a network cable from the laptop's RJ45 port to the wireless router's RJ45 port and do the ping test again.
If you still get no reply and lost packets then most likely you have a faulty wireless router.
Get back to me on the results of the tests and I can then advise what to do next.

How to create hotspot in dell vostro 200 ?


Deepa christopher
Unfortunately, you cannot make the computer a hotspot without a wireless card installed. You could add a wireless card and then search the internet on how to setup the computer as a hotspot with the OS installed on the computer.

Dell Vostro 320 network dead and now wireless network dead


I personally think all AIO PC's like the Vostro 320 are lemons because they have heat issues due to poor ventilation. The internals aren't easily accessible to the average user. And when one thing breaks inside the customer almost always has to send the whole unit back to the company to get fixed.

That being said, wireless adapters do frequently die due to overheating.

Luckily wireless adapters are very inexpensive. www.newegg.com has several decent usb adapters for less than $10 and with FREE shipping.

If I were you I'd give this model a try:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833315091

I've personally purchased this exact model several times and never had a problem with it. It's super small and plugs into an open USB slot. Most times your operating system will even auto install the drivers for you too so it really doesn't get any easier than that.

Good Luck!
